Wicked Maine Styled Shoot

Updated: Aug 25


D Cole Jewelers of Maine and the Maine State Insect

Recently I had a consultation with a wedding couple and I was describing how much I enjoy the planning process. I enjoy planning weddings so much I decided to take on planning and shooting another styled shoot this summer. The summer of the Covid-19 pandemic when all but one of my wedding clients have pushed their weddings back to 2021. Some of them moved their date twice because having their loved ones be safe and healthy was more important than their wedding. I can't tell you how amazing it is to know my clients really care WHO is at their wedding more than what color the chair covers are. Nevertheless, I was chatting with fellow wedding professionals who also did not want to waste time working on their businesses despite the pandemic. Like Minded people taking advantage of this time to get better, do better, to show their best work. So, without further ado, here is my Wicked Maine Styled Shoot!

Thank you, Raw Golden Rentals for this dress. I promise it looks better off the hanger! The shoes are Kate Spade and that sparkle goes with the dress perfectly!!

These ADORABLE chocolates were hand crafted by the genius over at My Favorite Sweets Favors

Let's talk about that hair! Autumn Bellefleur may have taken some time away from hair and make-up at weddings but this is proof she hasn't lost her touch! Adding actual sea glass to our model's hair was her idea and it took my breath away!

Sydney heard me say "Wicked Maine" and she dreamt up this mouthwatering blueberry and lemon cake and the iconic whoopie pies! These scrumptious goodies were made with love by Mountain View Confections

Ok so my second favorite part of this shoot was the flatlays. I spent so much time and money curating all the pieces, even down to the REAL lobster! D Cole does it again with the jewelry that was just PERFECT for this shoot. Classy, timeless, and beautiful yellow gold pieces. Those compass rose earrings made it on to my list for Santa!




Thank you so much, Captain Nickels Inn! Your venue is absolutely charming and I can't wait to be back to visit!
